Experience an amazing night of high-flying feats and stunning imagery from Cirque du Soleil. This magical romance, inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, takes you to a mysterious island where goddesses walk the land and the rhythm of life is ruled by the cycles of the moon. The daughter of Queen Prospera is undergoing the rituals of her coming-of-age ceremony when a group of young men, caught up in a storm, become stranded on the island. Prospera's daughter falls in love with one of the brave sailors, but the two lovers must overcome many trials and setbacks before finding peace together. As the story unfolds, the dazzling arts of Cirque du Soleil illustrate the tale. The island world of Amaluna bursts to life with jugglers, aerial performers, dancers, unicyclists and much more.

Engrossing performance and acting. One confused sexual compulsive writer, one married man with difficulty coming out, the woman he married in distress. There was some back and forth in terms of time of action which may have been confusing, but didn't really seem to matter much.
Oliver, Philip, and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp. Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama. After taking London by storm last season in an Olivier Award-winning production at the Royal Court, The Pride now makes its American premiere at MCC Theater.
Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out_) directs this alternately tough and touching look at love and betrayal by Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia_). Four of Britain’s most acclaimed young actors, Hugh Dancy (Adam, Journey’s End_), Adam James (Last Chance Harvey_), Andrea Riseborough (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Brideshead Revisited) will star.
